    Product feature
    1. Backpack technical tests.
      We carry out laboratory tests to check components: fabrics, buckles, straps, foam, zips... For example, with fabrics: resistance to rubbing, tearing, colour-fastness under UV rays, washing, waterproofing...A test on the final product which speeds up the effects of impact on the backpack over the years, to check resistance of the assemblies: with ballasts, they are placed on a mannequin and the movements which accompany quick walking over thousands of cycles are reproduced.
    2. 10-year warranty, technical partner
      The heavy clothing research and development service, a partner of Quechua, overseeing the research and approval of components and assemblies, completed tests simulating ageing of backpacks. These tests focused on the components, seams and the end product. The results enable Quechua and DECATHLON to guarantee these tested bags for 10 years from the purchase date on the till receipt.
    3. 10-year warranty conditions
      The warranty covers backpack defaults, with the exception of those resulting from standard wear and tear and abnormal usage conditions. This special 10-year warranty will only be applied upon presentation of the product and till receipt, and where the product is covered by the warranty, it will be repaired or exchanged free of charge. This commercial warranty does not exclude applicable legal warranties dependent on the country and/or State.
    4. How is bag volume measured?
      The volume of each backpack is measured using a standard method: small balls are used to fill the main compartment as well as each pocket. We then empty the balls into a graduated container which provides the equivalent volume in litres with a tolerance ranging a couple of %. The weight when empty is that displayed by our reference sample. There may be slight variations.
    5. How do I adjust my backpack?
      FIRSTLY, LOOSEN all the buckles (straps, belt, load boosters). PUT ON THE BAG. For bags of 50 l and more, PLACE THE BELT ON THE HIPS (it must cover the pelvic iliac bones) AND TIGHTEN IT. For smaller volumes, place around the waist. TIGHTEN THE STRAP BUCKLES. Finally, ADJUST THE LOAD BOOSTERS to your liking.
    6. How do I fill my backpack?
      Place sleeping equipment at the bottom. Place heavy materials near the back (tent, camping stove, food). Clothing should be placed around them. The ground sheet should be placed under the flap; the tent should be placed under the bag where there is no space inside. Keep waterproof jackets and fleece close to hand. Small items will be divided amongst the pockets (sun cream, card, glasses...). The water pocket is generally placed in the compartment which runs along the back.
    7. A score for comparing products' environmental impact
      The product's environmental impact is calculated across its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall ABCDE score is attributed to help you more readily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing the same type of product (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon is committed to visually displaying environmental information. For more information visit: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

      I bought this for cycling. My previous rucksack was waterproof but heavy so was looking for something a little lighter. This is a good product particularly for the price. A decent capacity - will hold a loaf of bread plus tools and a waterproof if needed. Materials used seem good but isn't waterproof although it wasn't advertised as such either, but seems fine for showers. The formed semi-rigid back panel is good for walking but when cycling tends to press a bit on the lower back. Not uncomfortable though. The straps seem a little long and the absence of secondary fastenings for taking up slack means the spare flaps about in the wind. There are some elastic loops which I assume are for this but they don't really work.
      All in all a good value rucksack, nice styling and light weight. Recommended.

      Would be better waterproof.

      Recently bought a Forclaz 20 air backpack in pink and grey. The item was for my daughter for school. I was given instructions of what she wanted and was able to find this at decathlon with ease and at a very reasonable price.. it is perfectly sized with plenty of storage and is a slow comfortable to wear when loaded.

      It seems there is a massive design flaw with this particular backpack, in that the back plate digs into ones back when worn. Maybe this isn't a problem for someone who is 5'8 or less, but anyone taller will surely have the same issue. It's unbearable, and so I'm returning it for that reason.
      Response of the brand
      Hello,

      Thanks for your feedback on the Quechua Forclaz 20 Air backpack. I apologise for the inconvenience caused by the back plate. I will pass on the information to the product manager for the product to investigate further. 

      Thanks for getting in touch

      I wanted something smaller than the Sherpa pack I currently have. Something for day use, not heavy, looks good and basically does the job I ask of it at a great price. Look no further than this bag, I've used it for hiking, walking, cycling, fishing etc.. Nothing it can't do and its comfortable to wear for large amounts of time. Very happy with this pack and I look forward to using it more and more.
